New the forum

Good morning. By way of introduction I consider myself to be politically moderate, independent minded, as likely to vote Republican as Democrat (although I am truly concerned regarding how far to the right the GOP seems to have gone). Personally, I am a leading edge baby boomer, married to the same woman for 46 years, father of 2, grandfather of 1. I'm USN (retired) and been in my second career for over 20 years.

I've already posted a couple of times so I suppose I'm a bit tardy in posting this introduction. Looking forward to the discourse.

Howdy Beej.
